Where should I stay in Perth Hills?

  • Mungaring: Mundaring is for the romantics who wish to get some peace and quiet out of their trip. To its east is Zamia State Forest, known for its Bibbulmun Track. Up north, you can walk the Railway Reserve Heritage Trail, which cuts through Mount Helena Tavern in Mount Helena.
  • Bickley Valley: If you've come to Perth Hills for the wine then you must set up home in Bickley Valley. The Bickley Valley Wine Trail is legendary, encompassing boutique wineries and cideries by local makers.
  • Gooseberry Hill: Named so for its hilly landscape, Gooseberry Hill rightly has more than its fair share of rooms with a view. The suburb is known for its proximity to the Kalamunda Zig Zag, a one-way scenic downhill drive which was previously a railway line.
  • Roleystone: Ringed by greenery, Roleystone serves up large properties and verdant views. For a romantic day out, pay a visit to its famous Araluen Botanic Park whose tulips provide a rainbow of colour in the springtime.
